What type of oil is used for my 2055 2.O CI woodsman chain saw?


This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline.Before operation,gasoline must be mixed with a good quality synthetic
2-cycle air-cooled engine oil designed to be mixed at a ratio of 40:1.Poulan/Weed Eater brand synthetic oil is recommended.Mix
gasoline and oil at a ratio of40:1.A 40:1ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 ounces of oil with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline.

As far as bar and chain oil:
Genuine Poulan R bar and chain oil is recommended to protect your unit against excessive wear from heat and friction.Poulan R oil resists high temperature thinning.If Poulan R is not available,use a
good grade SAE30 oil. Never use waste oil for bar and chain lubrication.

I have a Poulan Pro 16 inch chain saw that will not lubricate the chain. I have cleaned the ports and made sure the reservoir is clean.


It sounds like a bad oil pump or worm gear; this should help
Oil System Plugged:
1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution.
• Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out.
• Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability).
• Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw).
• If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go.
• Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections.
• If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (99.9% of clutches have a left handed thread; tighten it to remove it).
• Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
3. If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL for the location).

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system and it is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:

An example of a Poulan “PP220 Gas Chain Saw Type 5” IPL follows (may not be your saw):

It has an outboard clutch use this and the IPL as a guide for removal. R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

If your saw is not a Type 7 an IPL for all Poulan chainsaws can be found here:

I think you have more than one problem.
1. I think the pitch of the bar and the chain you are using are different.
2. I think either you failed to bar add oil to the bar oil reservoir or your oiler is not working. Why you are burning up bars.
3. I think your Poulan saw says Craftsman (model will not cross).

See page 14 for how to check oiler operation.

Test as I suggest then post back (below) with what you find and we will continue. I will need clarification on the make and model of this saw to be much more help. If all else fails for the model provide the engine size in CCs. We are prohibited from contacting you directly. Sorry. HTH

Hello, Sir, Good Morning, I am operating POULAN chain Saw model no 4016.( i bought it in 2007 from germany) and facing a problum with oil system.which is not lubricating the bar and chain.i start engine...


Hi,

Are you using the correct viscosity oil? - It is quite important that the oil is not too thick to freely flow. I am assuming that you are pushing down on the oil tank actuator cap to try and get the chain lubricated? (This is a manual process and does not lubricate the chain automatically on this saw)

Failing that, it sounds like there could be a blockage internally within the oil tank that needs to be cleared.

If this is the case, the user manual (http://dl.owneriq.net/5/5050c27f-7f11-43a6-9bb9-0d77109d285c.pdf) suggests contacting a repair centre.

You could always try removing the bar and chain and carefully working a small piece of wire into the lubricant holes to try and free any clogged up oil.


If this helps, please leave feedback - if not, let me know and I'll try and help some more!

I have a poulan wild thing 18" bar and I have had a problem with the bars wearing out quickly. I use regular poulan bar and chain oil. Did this saw have a specific problem with the oiling system?


If the oil level in the chain oil tank goes down normally then you may be running the chain too tight. Also make sure the oil ports in the bar are clear so the oil can get to the chain. hope this helps you

Are you using any oil in the oil resivour? The oil lubricates the chain on the bar. I would guess that you installed the chain backwards. If the chain moves freely on the bar it is getting lubrication. I have made that mistake before. check rotation and your new chain. Don't know what brand of chain saw you have, automatic oiler, manual oiler, ect. but would guess that the problem is with the chain itself. Hope it as simple as that.

Need to know what kind of oil to put in ryobi chainsaw


If it is an electric chainsaw (not gas powered) then the only oil you need is chainsaw bar oil, which lubricates the chain and bar during use (self feeding system). This goes into the chamber at the top of the saw. You can buy chain/bar oil for chainsaws at any good hardware store or outdoor power equipment store. You can use any brand of chain bar oil, most are pretty good.

If it is a gas/petrol operated model, I will need to know the model number to advise on that.

I have a poulan-pro 20" chain saw ... It doesn't seem to have good chain lubrication ... How do I check if the chain oil pump is working (or if there is a clog) ... The manual is poor ... Thanks ...


What I would do is remove the bar and chain. In the side of the bar are a couple holes that feed oil from the saw into the bar grooves. Make sure these are clean of any debris. Then look at the side of the saw where there is usually a wear plate and make sure the groove there is also free of debris. Lastly I would start the saw WITHOUT the bar and chain and look for oil coming from the groove area described above. If nothing coming out then you have a problem with saw motor and would have to go deeper into it.
